Related to my last post, a fun quiz to see if your dialect matches up with a region of the UK.  For me, I got the East Midlands, which is cool since I got to visit that region during TCUK last year, and liked the area very much. 🙂

One thought on “BBC – Future – Do you have a secret British accent?

  1. East Midlands for me too. I daresay that most Americans would get the same result. Almost all of the questions seemed pretty cut-and-dried to me. Still, our language is remarkable, in terms of both its variety and its history. (I read the other BBC article you blogged about, too. There was a lot in there that I didn’t know.)
